15228. In A Moment, Oh! How Wondrous

1 "In a moment," oh! how wondrous
"In the twinkling of an eye!"
"Face to face," to be with Jesus,
Through a long eternity!
Come, then, Savior, quickly come,
Take Thy waiting people home.

2 "In a moment," oh, how precious,
"In the twinkling of an eye!"
We shall trace Thy ways mysterious,
Learn them there without a sigh.
"Darkly now," we see Thy grace,
Then it will be "face to face."

3 "In a moment," loved and lost ones;
"In the twinkling of an eye";
By the trumpet roused to summons,
Shall be "caught up" to the sky.
We and they, it is Thy word,
Shall be ever with the Lord.

4 "In a moment," Christ descending,
"In the twinkling of an eye,"
He shall reign, His reign unending,
"King of kings enthroned on high."
Come, then, Savior, let us there
In Thy power and triumph share.
